Learn how to create a heart in Photoshop using custom shapes and layer styles from this easy to follow Photoshop tutorial. I will use the default Photoshop heart shape found in CS4, but you can use any other shape. By simply moving the heart I will create a simple 3d heart effect; the same technique can be applied to create other 3d shapes in Photoshop. Being a vector heart, I can easily change the shape and color of the heart. A vector shape can also be resized without loosing its quality. If you decide to resize the heart don't forget to scale the effects of the layer style otherwise it will look weird. The PSD file is made with Photoshop CS4 and can be downloaded for free by all our registered users.
